Style Medium bodied, crisp
This medium-bodied unoaked Sauvignon Blanc is slightly leafy in style, but balances that with lush citrus fruit.

Pale straw with a light green hue. Vibrant aromas of lime zest, lemongrass and passion-fruit with underlying base notes of mineral and fresh herbs. A lively combination of passion-fruit and crisp green apple flavours are drawn across the palate by a pristine mineral acidity. The fantastic mix of herbaceous and citrus flavours come together in a dry, harmonious finish that's utterly delicious.

Country Of Origin: New Zealand
Brent Marris, Marlborough born and raised, spent years as a youngster exploring the landscape of his home region. He put that exploration to good use when, in 2003, he started his search for a vineyard property. The site he chose was 268ha of vineyards on the banks of the Waihopai River, on the southern side of the Wairau Valley. He knew immediately it had enormous potential. Tucked between the Delta Hills and the Waihopai River, the property flows over three distinct terraces of clays and ancient river shingles, providing the fruit variation and complexity that a winemaker can normally only dream of from a single vineyard site. From here, Brent started Marisco Vineyards and achieved international success with his wines, most notably with his flagship brand “The Ned”.

Named after the summit of Marlborough at 909 metres above sea level, The Ned is an abiding symbol of “The Summit of Marlborough.”

The Karearea is the only falcon found in New Zealand and is a threatened species. Ned have a breeding pair, resident at the property, named Maggie and Astin. They take great delight in scaring away other birds thereby reducing the need for man-made pest control.
